Why did I lose my priority My Registration Date?

Continuing students may lose their priority My Registration Date if they are placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive terms or they have completed more than 100 units at Allan Hancock College. The 100 unit limit does not include units earned in English as Second Language (ESL) or basic skills courses (500- level coursework).

Students who meet established criteria may be eligible to appeal for priority registration.
